"Disturbing and difficult as this nightmarish novel is, it is a work of imaginative brilliance that resonates in our own day." (Herald)
"An excellent new translation . . . this Hunger deserves to be the standard English version. Canongate did well to secure it." (Times Literary Supplement)
"Hunger is the crux of Hamsun's claims to mastery. This is the classic novel of humiliation, even beyond Dostoevsky." (Observer)
"Hunger is undoubtedly one of the most important novels of the modern age. At last it has found a translator capable of doing justice to its immense power and complexity: Lyngstad's deserves to become the standard English version." (Duncan McClean)
Brand new edition of Knut Hamsun's most famous work, with an introduction by Paul Auster
